Altarpiece made with beef bones on a wooden support, incorporating metal. The texture made with a spatula and the colors given with a brush and oil. Visualize the sacrifice of men in the world seeking the breadwinner. The horseshoe means good luck and represents Oggún as a symbol of primitive strength and earthly energy. The geometric figures that he proclaims are the material objects to be sold, accompanied by the Elegguá opening the paths of life, who is one of the Orishas who received Olofi's blessing. The bones belonged to one or more cattle, which were sacrificed in pursuit of the sustenance of the men, now I transform them into an artistic composition as an appropriation and manipulation of the work The King of the toy by the Cuban artist Wifredo Lam.
